The above charts show a considerable and satisfactory use of the facilities of the Library, especially that of the eleven (11) Discussion Rooms (DRs) spread over the three (3) floors of the Library. We report a total of 382 students using the DRs at different timetables and booking either online or coming over to the Library requesting the reservation from Staff at the Circulation Desk Services. Purpose of use has been declared, for the most part, during this end of term as preparing for their seminar or working together to discuss their forthcoming oral or written examinations. It’s very gratifying to see and observe the proficiency and ease with which students make use of the available technology and the resources from the internet provided for in the DRs. We are grateful to the IT Unit Staff for their most valued cooperation in providing efficient services in this our joint goal of assisting our students and giving them the best quality educational techniques and pieces of equipment.

Below we present the statistical report of books loaned during the same period as above. While there is a wide usage of the internet, it is also good to know that our students are guided by the teaching faculty to make use of the printed word. There is a total of 755 books loaned out. Our daily observation also show that now our students use with ease the self-service RFID check-in/out machines; however, those who have incurred fines because of overdue books are referred to by such “intelligent machines” to the Staff at the Circulation Desk.
